Chance The Rapper has proven himself a crazy capable MC over a wide variety of production. He seems to favor more lush live instrumentation via his band The Social Experiment these days, but he could be returning to a more traditional sound soon.
Mello Music Group reached out to Chance via Twitter yesterday (April 28) in regards to two Apollo Brown beats that he rhymed over early in his career – and they want to make an official collab happen.
Chano has rhymed over two Apollo beats in the past; “Windows” from his debut mixtape 10 Day (which uses the “Bridge Through Time” beat from Clouds) and the loosie “The Writer.” Considering how much of an impact he’s made on the mainstream as a completely independent artist, it’d be interesting to see Chance pay it forward and go in on some hard boom-bap. Chance and his team have yet to comment, but check out the two songs below and tell us whether or not you’d be down.
